The Celebrity Classic scholarships encourage students with intellectual, creative, and leadership promise to complete a master's or doctoral degree at Texas State University. These scholarships are available for newly admitted and continuing students and are offered annually. The application period for the Celebrity Classic scholarship is November 1 through March 1.
The Celebrity Classic provides $1,500 per semester for the remainder of hours in your degree plan (for a maximum of three academic years). Scholarships are awarded for the academic year (fall, spring, and summer) and are disbursed every semester.
The Celebrity Classic will fund only courses that apply to your degree. For example, if your degree plan only requires six hours of thesis course work, the scholarship will not fund thesis courses beyond the six-hour requirement.
If awarded, you must:
enroll in at least six hours of graduate-level (5000 or above) courses leading to the degree
maintain continuous enrollment (fall, spring, summer)
maintain a 3.5 cumulative graduate GPA
If you are applying for the Celebrity Classic scholarship, you must be a current student (admitted to a master's or doctoral program at Texas State University) or have completed an application for admission.

We strongly encourage you to start the scholarship application process as early as possible after November 1 to ensure that you will be able to complete your application(s) by March 1.
